It was great. Learned a lot about lokal food. Wir haben viel probiert und auch das nächtlichen war super erklärt. Jeder hatte seine eigene Kochstation und Benny und ihre Familie haben sich toll gekümmert. Ich kann mir keine bessere Cooking class vorstellen. Danke 🙏

From the beginning to end Benny treats you like family! You go to a locals only market & try all the Northern Thai foods. You got to Benny's beautiful home and cook the day away! Benny works with her mom, niece & partner and you feel as though you are part of the family! This is not a commercialized experience (they are not even on Facebook)! Come cook & enjoy your time with Benny and her family
I’m not normally comfortable with cooking but Benny’s demonstrations and explanations of each stage made the process so simple. I feel confident to have a go at Thai food at home. The visit to the market was most informative and helped to us recognize the ingredients. It was a nice relaxed group of people who felt like friends by the end of the day and that was largely due to Benny’s good feelings and smiles. I would recommend this course to anyone skilled or not in cooking.
My dad loves to cook. He is a home chef and was close minded about cooking strategies. I took him to Thailand for his 60th birthday. He was hesitant at first but when we got to talk with Thai natives during the market tour, he became really interested and he started asking questions. By the time we started our individual cooking, he got so competitive and started to compete with the instructor. Gladly, the chef was very understanding and patient. The staff were also friendly and accommodating. They laughed and enjoyed watching us and we all had a wonderful time altogether. The dishes we made were sumptuous and delightful! My dad was so proud of himself and even bragged that he was better than every one else in the group. We all had a great day and my dad asked if we could comeback soon.
My partner and I absolutely loved our experience cooking with Benny. What a wonderful teacher and so so much fun. Definitely a laugh-a-minute and Benny and Nan made everything simple to follow. Importantly Benny taught us how to adapt the recipes for the produce available in our home countries. I can recommend her wholeheartedly! Also, wonderful to support a passionate, local entrepreneur.
